7 Factors to Consider before selecting an Ad-agency

Businesses hire an external ad agency, only once they are certified of the fact that the agency will help them execute their advertising and promotional campaigns more effectively. This is because the individuals working in an agency are not just passionate about advertising, but are also knowledgeable experts and thrive on the values of unity and dedication for the project at hand. Most advertisers work with an agency, in order to ensure that the work is carried out smoothly and is up to industry standards. Here are 7 factors you MUST include in your research to narrow down on an agency:

  1. Total extent of the Agency:
    In most cases, the larger the agency, the better quality of services offered by the same. When an agency operates on a larger scale, it is pretty obvious that it has the financial prowess to hire a good amount of ad professionals. Also, smaller agencies do not have the skill to provide a wide range of services. With the advent of large agencies, it is always preferable to consult a huge ad agency.
  2. Number of clients:
    Most agencies have their own website or brochure. You must log on to their website and view the existing clients being handled by the agency, before hiring them to carry out your own work. An expert advises that if the agency has a client on board that deals in the same line of products as yours, it is recommended to avoid the agency in order to avoid the occurrence of repetitive work and exchange of crucial business information with the competitor.
  3. Types of services offered:
    It is essential to view the types of ad and non-ad-based services offered by the agency. Depending on your requirements, you can hire a small or a large ad agency accordingly. Moreover, certain types of agencies specialise in a particular industry such as FMCG advertising while other agencies may specialise in industrial marketing.
  4. Media Contacts possessed by the Agency:
    With the help of adequate media contacts, the agency will be able to accommodate the desired place, date and time required for the promotion of your business. Agencies that closely work with most communication channels such as radio channels, TV channels, publishers, printers and so on are the ones to consider.
  5. Agency location and Proximity:
    It is important to calculate the location of the advertisement agency for better communication and contact with the agency. The closer the proximity to the agency, the better convenience, control and involvement with its activities.
  6. Methods of payment and compensation:
    It is good to compare the ad rates demanded by different agencies before zeroing in on the perfect one. This is because different agencies charge different amounts and promotional activities are always bound by tight budgets.
  7. Total amount of involvement:
    An agency must show complete respect for the client and allow it to take part in the activities, give its feedback and work with the same form time-to-time. Moreover, monthly reports and expenses should be shown by the advertiser on an alternate basis.

A professional marketing plan pays off in great dividends by eliminating wasted advertising and marketing efforts and unnecessary costs. Call on experts to create and develop your marketing plan.Make your advertising decisions based upon research and a formal marketing plan.

Make sure to focus your message on what is important to your audience, and not yourself. Potential customers rarely care about what’s important to you. They only care about what you can do for them. Harsh but true.
2. Plan your advertising calendar several months in advance.
Failure to plan advertising in advance wastes a lot of your money. Rush charges, poor vehicle choices, rate increases, poor creative and poor copy are common results of failing to plan in advance.
Figure out the number of ad insertions that will make sense and negotiate a contract with the various media suppliers.
3. Test your copy and your ads.
Only by trial and error will you be able to set a baseline as to the best response rates for your ads and copy. It is very important to maximize response for the amount of dollars spent. Sometimes re-phrasing copy or adjusting ad layouts can mean the difference between an average response and a great response.
4. Hire professionals to handle your advertising.
When you need to advertise, hire an ad agency. You need to concentrate your time and efforts in areas of your business that you’re proficient in.
You can lose a lot of time and money while trying to act as your own ad agency. Agencies are experts. They charge for their time and experience and have one goal in mind: To get the best results for their clients in order to keep those clients. Many times, ads done by amateurs lack the true market drivers of an audience. An agency will research your market and your audience to learn the real issues concerning your product or services.
5. Save copies of all of your ads, press releases, and printed collateral. Make sure to provide as much information as possible to your agency.
In order to write the most persuasive copy and to design the most effective ads, it is important for your agency to know what has worked in the past and what hasn’t.
There is nothing wrong with using elements or information from previously successful ads. Your advertising should have some consistent elements from your printed collateral and vice-versa.
6. Make sure that your advertising message focuses on what is important for your audience and not what is important to you.
Saving money, gaining market share pre-empting competition, saving time, peace of mind, and related desires are typical of what your audience is looking for. Your target audience will typically be more concerned about what you can do for them, as opposed to what you do.
7. Avoid misleading or dishonest copy in hopes of converting duped readers into using your products or services.
Honesty and integrity are key to repeat sales and repeat business. If you have to trick your audience to get their attention, you will have a very hard time keeping their attention.
